Some of the more experienced domainers always warned: the domainers who practice auction fraud are wasting time and money to sellers but they also lose their own time and without the intelligence that characterizes them, also lose time and money. It's always the big corporations with tighter security filters that stand to gain because those little crooks can not even be accepted. Both parties in an auction must have transparency, trust and honesty.
Recently (with FlippingHut) ourselves were victims of fraud and fake bidders when we put some of our domains at auction.
Despite our protests and criticism about their attitude, not only took the side of the offender, as opted to offend us using terms like "f .... yu" when we just tried merely to know the steps to follow to get the money gained with the auction they themselves emailed us WE WON.
The scammers and false bidders are everywhere in real life and now also on the Internet.

The scammers and false bidders are everywhere in real life and now also on the Internet.As in the movie "High Noon" with Gary Cooper, users and even some experienced domainers tend to pretend that nothing serious is going on, relying only on their own earnings, as if everything ended well with a happy ending.

"Flippinghut.com is a New Auction website very similiar to Flippa.com except it is FREE! It's a community of Buyers and Sellers who want the community to suggest features and implement them. Flipping hut is trying to be the best marketplace for the cheapest fees around!"
Following the promotion made by this website on Facebook, we got a promotional offer of some credits for investing in new auctions, which we did. To our surprise and in a few days one of our auctions won with a winning bid of $ 1000, which as usual in all auctions, did end the auction itself.
To our complete surprise however and after several times to write the winner, did not get any response. Anyone who has had this experience knows that the seller is that it provide data on the transfer of the domain but it is up to the buyer to pay for the auction, what did not. He/she never replied.
As we did not get any response tried to know from the respective website, what steps should we take to get the value of the auction already ended once the winner made a bid on BIN.
To our astonishment FlippingHut replied that he had nothing to do with the auction and with the fact we have not had any response since they do not charge any commission. After several reminders and our criticism, we obtained the following response:
"Dude what do not you get!? I do not know the fucking buyer!You send me one more fuxking email and I'll ban you and remove peminately
You're a fucking moron
You're banned from this group and my site you stupid idiot your domains are pieces of shit the guy probably does not want your pos site. "
Our response, more poetic and symbolic than offensive, was as follows:
"Mr Jokom (this is the username used by the "winner"):
somebody cut the top of your head and let the demons come out. Your resistance to the truth was clearly demonstrated. Cancel my auctions and your bids. Finish the service before the new members stay alert."
I apologize to readers of this site and mainly those that read the post where we recommended FlippingHut. Yes, do not place your domains at auction in there (according their own words) before to check the feedback of the buyer or the seller. As the new members or those that do not receive feedback, have no feedback, you know what to do. If you don´t do you risk of wasting your time and lose your money.
